We often see lenses described as being for a particular type of photography. Anything in the 50-135mm range is for portraits, anything 150 and up is for wildlife or sports and anything 28mm or less is generally regarded as a “landscape lens”. Wide angle lenses just typically seem to be designated to that genre.
It’s all nonsense, of course, you can shoot whatever you want with whatever focal length you like. And that’s put to the test in this landscape photography challenge between landscape photographers Nigel Danson and James Popsys. One is only allowed to shoot with a 24mm while the other has to shoot 200mm.
